Located in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, Kīlauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Since 1983, the young volcano has added more than 500 acres of new land to Hawai’i’s “Big Island.” As Kīlauea continues to erupt, wide swaths of the surrounding rain forests are destroyed by oozing molten rock. These black rivers are constantly flowing—making way for new life and regenerating the forest life cycle.

About Short Film Showcase:
The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
